jones. the firm's advice to military personnel is don't wait until you're out to figure out what you'll do next. "start early before you get out and seen how you can translate skills afterward while serving our country." "today's military is not all about hand-to-hand combat." rodrigo garcia, assistant director of veterans affairs in illinois, says veteran face a series of perceptions before they even apply. businesses, he says can be wary of hiring reservists for fear they'll be deployed, and hesitant to hire combat veterans--concerned that they may suffer post-tramatic stress disorder. he admits, it can be a tough sell. "their commitment, dedication, ability to make decisions is what sets them apart and adds to the bottom line." but employers say analyzing a spreadsheet is different than assessing threats to a village. garcia says the biggest challenge facing veterans is lack of education. during the last four years, the post 9/11 g-i bill has provided more than 30-billion dollars for tuition, book stipends and other expenses for a million veterans to get the sort of education they
